Flexjet LLC has introduced Global Access, a first-of-its-kind flexible lease program providing access to a large-cabin fleet for long-range international travel, the company said.
Global Access offers an hourly rate structure that reflects the efficiencies of long-range travel.
A model available nowhere else in private jet travel, Global Access is a lease that grants participants access to Flexjet´s fleet of large-cabin, long-range aircraft, with responsive hourly rates that decrease the longer the distance flown.
Global Access by Flexjet can be added to existing fractional ownership contracts or acquired through stand-alone leases. Unlike traditional fractional ownership programs, participation in Global Access does not entail buying shares in a particular jet. Instead, participants will be able to access Flexjet´s entire fleet of large-cabin aircraft, with Flexjet providing the most mission-suitable large-cabin jet for each international trip requested.
Global Access offers significant benefits for corporate flight departments. companies that primarily operate domestically would not have to take aircraft offline for international trips. They also do not need to worry about arranging repositioning legs for international flights. Finally, they can rely on Flexjet´s international flight planning expertise to manage the unique details of global travel.
All Global Access participants will have access to Flexjet´s growing fleet of long-range aircraft, including the Bombardier Global Express and Gulfstream G450. In addition, the program will offer access to long-range aircraft that will be joining the Global Access fleet over the coming years, including the Gulfstream G650, the Gulfstream G500 and the Aerion AS2, which will be the world´s first supersonic business jet.
Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995, and celebrated its 20th anniversary in May 2015.
